REALLY. FREAKING. COLD
If I am going to keep on task becoming a runner again, I need to learn to love running in this shit. Even though today's temp is well below zero, it is still doable with the right clothing. Unfortunately, I don't have the right clothing. Rather than lose a few digits to frostbite, I sat this round out and made a list of the gear I need. I need just about everything.
I do have a pair of fleece-lined tights that I can wear as an under layer and a few long sleeve tech shirts but that is about it. I need stuff to keep me warm yet not too bulky so I can move freely.
Cold weather people, what are your must haves for running in the tundra? I see some shopping in my future. Ha!
I have also decided that I am going to keep my membership to the gym so that I can run on the dreadmill when the temps get really low. I hate cold, but I hate the dreadmill more so I would rather brave the elements than spend time on the machine. It will be nice to have a back up.
Speaking of gear....
We are doing a Secret Santa gift exchange at work and I got a great gift
Thank you Secret Santa! I love it. It is perfect for my 2009 goals.
